What kind of IDE do you use when you learn Javascript?

When I learn how to code C/C++ in my university, I always use Microsoft Visual Studio as my main IDE to compile programs. But when I learn Javascript, I don't know if VS is a suitable IDE for coding Javascript??? Thank you.

JavaScript don't necessarily need an IDE, although you can use one. JS need mainly a text editor to write the code. What text editor is best at this, the best bet is Visual Studio Code, the younger sister of the Visual Studio IDE. Note JS runs in browser as its environment you don't need a separate compiler, the compiler is already in the browser. You can run JS code with NodeJS if you don't want to run your code in a browser. Atom is another powerful and open source text editor, you can get it free at www.atom.io. Atom is a little heavy on system resources but might want to try you know. VS Code seems to be leading in recent years since it have out of the box support for web technologies. Html, css, JS and even TypeScript. IDE's will equally work, but it will be too large. I hope this helps. Regards...
